This restaurant is back off the street a little bit but well worth looking for.

The casual ambiance is very nice and the open kitchen is fun to watch. The service is also first rate. But, of course, it is the food that should be the real star, and it is!

On a recent visit one person had the mushroom pizza with truffle oil and said it was the best pizza she ever had. Another had the vegetable lasagna and said it was the best he ever had. I had pasta with Bolognese sauce and it was absolutely delicious. The bread was also very good and the wine list is not large but has some really nice choices, including several by the glass.

I highly recommend this restaurant.

The menu has many wonderful food choices. Lots of pastas with many different sauces. The bread is delicious. Lots of pizzas which are always a big hit. The prices are moderate. The portions are large. There are many different salads and can easily be shared. We had wonderful service. The restaurant has outside seating as well.

The sauces are to die for but they only offer four types of pastas? I am sure if they offered additional pastas with their excellent sauces, they would be even more fantastic !

I enjoyed the food and the portions weren't crazy big, which was nice. I love to sit and watch the chefs make pizzas and salads, etc. Our waiter was so nice, which helped since we had our 12 month old son with us. Really nice bruch/lunch!

Don't go here - the owner here is a total... impolite and nasty... person... My wife and I went here to dine and he was nasty... but, my wife - who likes second chances - returned for take out - the owner asked if she had been helped when she came to pick up the food - she said no - he walked off, did nothing, and it took another 10 minutes for someone to ask if she needed help - the food had been there the entire time, but the owner/chef didn't feel, apparently, that he could soil his hands by helping. So, the food was cold when she got it... The food is delicious; the servers and people working there are really nice, but the owner seems to be a total nincompoop - he just has no clue - perhaps he has "first time owner" hubris? We have no idea, but we've been twice, sadly, and had run ins both times with this strutting little rooster with a chip on his shoulder. We don't plan to return - there are too many nice restaurants in Danville where we get great service and a nice reception to deal with an owner who is full of himself...
